Air Peace management has commended the Federal government for the decision to close the Enugu international Airport in order to allow a proper repair and maintenance of the airport’s runway which has given airlines serious safety concerns.
The airline in a statement signed by its chairman, Allen Onyema, sait it is fully and totally in support of this decision the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
“Though the decision will affect the traveling public and, of course, the airline, we place the safety of the flying public, our crew and equipment above any commercial benefits.
“The government should go all out to put everything in place, within the period of the closure, that would make the airport rank among the best international airports in the country. We plead with the Federal Government to make the airport a 24hr flight operations airport by improving the night landing infrastructure”, he said.
Onyema, who also thanked the Federal Government for the appointment of Capt. Hamisu Yadudu as the Managing Director of FAAN, said his appointment is a testimony to the Federal Government’s resolve to put result driven persons at the helm of its agencies.
Air Peace is not alone in this thought. Since his coming, airlines have started enjoying the services that would definitely improve the standards in the industry. We thank President Mohammadu Buhari for his resolve to attend to the infrastructural decay in the industry”, he added.
